Mind Mapping is a system that enables you to do many things.
It is a non linear graphical way to represent ideas and concepts.
As a visual thinking tool, the power of Mind Mapping lies in its simplicity.
When using a Mind Map, information is structured in a way that resembles much more closely how your brain actually works.
It is an activity that is both analytical and creative, engaging the brain in a broader and richer way, and helping with all its cognitive functions.
Because of this Mind Mapping is a great tool to encourage creativity and thinking outside the box.
You can use Mind Mapping as a preparation tool which enables;
- Problem Solving
- Researching and consolidating information from multiple sources
- Structuring a Presentation or Meeting
You can also use it in the moment, such as in a meeting where it can help with:
- Note taking
- Ordering and store information.
- Gaining insight on complex subjects
- Jogging your creativity
- Generating new ideas
- Comprehension and synthesis
Mind Mapping can be done with pens and paper, or with software on a computer.
At Craft of Communication we use Mind mapping as a tool in various contexts.
